POST GRADUATE STUDENT PRIZES
To encourage new researchers, ANZARME provides three Post Graduate Research prizes of $500 each:
the Doreen Bridges Prize, the David Sell Prize, and the Trevor Thwaites Prize for emerging student researchers
All three awards are for promising research presented at the conference to Post Graduate students undertaking investigations in the field of music education.
The Doreen Bridges Prize and the David Sell Prize are for research students who have completed Confirmation of their candidature at the time of the Conference. The Trevor Thwaites Prize is for research students who have not yet completed Confirmation at the time of the Conference.
The prizes are awarded on the recommendations of a panel of adjudicators who attend the presentations and the awarding of the prizes is at the discretion of the adjudicators, pending the number and quality of eligible presentations.
The criteria for the Doreen Bridges Prize and the David Sell Prize are as follows: clear introduction to research issues/contentions, positioning of research within the appropriate field of literature, an appropriate and well-articulated research approach, clarity of data presentation, rigor and depth of discussion and conclusion, and significance and timeliness of research.
The criteria for the Trevor Thwaites Prize are as follows:
clear introduction to research issues/contentions, positioning of research within the appropriate field of literature, clear description of planned research approach, an appropriate and well-articulated methodology, clarity of presentation, and anticipated significance and timeliness of research.
Previous winners are not eligible to apply. Students must be currently enrolled in their research studies, and student papers must be sole authored.
